New Delhi :

It was a major embarrassment for Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh when the Enforcement Directorate (ED) attached a farmhouse with a market value of Rs 27 crore in connection with its money laundering probe.

The agency has issued a provisional order attaching the farmhouse located in south Delhi's Mehrauli area under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

It said the book value of the asset is Rs 6.61 crore but its market value is "worth Rs 27 crore and is in the name of "Maple Destinations & Dreambuild".

The latest ED action comes close on the heels of the CBI filing a charge sheet against Singh and his wife and others for allegedly amassing assets worth around Rs 10 crore disproportionate to their known sources of income.

 The ED had filed a criminal case under PMLA against the CM and others in 2015 based on a CBI FIR.
